    Default The President pardons two Army Officers and restores the rank of a Navy SEAL

    Not much in the News about it. FOX did report on it this morning.

    https://americanmilitarynews.com/201...llaghers-rank/

    In another article I read some Army officers (notice the small case o) complained about the Presidents actions. They say it will negatively affect discipline.

    Are these the same officers that embrace all of the PC bullshit, gender/transgender/subjective pronouns, and inclusive non-offensive atmosphere that is the hallmark of the great militaries of history?

    "Officers" are subject to the UCMJ and running their mouths about the Commander in Chief could get them charged with insubordination

    Hopefully there's a senior NCO around to keep them in check.

    With respect to the Navy serviceman, I don't think this decision was in the best interest of the Service or the US, but I do understand why it would look that way.

    Perhaps you would care to elaborate as to why the Presidents decision, was not in the "best interest" of the service or the nation?

    This is just the opinion of a Vietnam veteran who survived Tet '68 and three combat tours. I don't much respect for the opinion of anybody who hasn't been on the ground and "in the shit" day after day, after day, after day so unless you've BTDT, I don't care what you think.

    The Seal? Lets see, couldnt get him on icing a BG and did a conviction with reduction in grade for some war photos. A couple of my SF buddies came back after Desert war 1 with some great war photos, much worse than anything the seal took. Times are a changing I guess.

    Good on the Pres. for understanding that when you make good killers, you get killers, not like any of the cases they were x-ing non combatants.

    In the civilian world there are two groups of S's. What applies here is shoot, shovel, and shutup.
